Beautiful hike!!!!

Beautiful fun trail. Very easy, good for kids.

I summited Mt. Timp last fall via Aspen Grove. The lookout at the farthest end of this hike opened up to a very nice view of a large portion of my Mt. Timp hike bringing back memories of each section of that hike.
I too had issues on this hike with pesky flying bugs that seemed to enjoy repeatedly flying around my head. I had luck keeping them at bay with a small leafy Aspen branch in hand swung around as needed.

Really pretty not too hard hike. An incredible view which was worth the bugs that accompany you. Although if the hike was much longer I might not have been able to give such a high review due to the little buggers.

The first part of the trail can accommodate groups rather nicely as it is wide excluding a few passes. It felt like a relatively safe trail for children to be lightly supervised.

If you decide to keep hiking past the initial waterfall the trail starts to increase in difficulty considerably. More water and incline conditioning is required.

I love the aspens along the trail and there are some beautiful look outs, especially at the end. We went on a Saturday morning in the summer and there were a lot of other hikers of all ages out on the trail. We went at a slow/leisurely pace and it took us about 2.5ish hours total.

the trail gets really rocky. my four year old kept tripping but she kept going. the end with the river and waterfall is worth the hike specially on a hot day. beautiful hike and mostly shaded.

The hike round trip is little less than 4 miles and fairly easy! Kid and dog friendly! Most bigger dogs were on a leash and gratefully people pick up after their pets! You might see soiled bags hanging from trees, but they will pick it up on their way back out. The waterfall is amazing! We saw group of people rappelling down the waterfall! They have all the fancy equipment, so it safe to watch! Not too many wildflowers compared to other trails, but there are picture worthy! Definitely coming back again before the season ends!

A very clean and uncrowded area. People complaining about it being to hot are the ones who can't force themselves to get up before 9:00 am. It's a beautiful temperature through 6 - 7 am. Beware it gets more crowded around 9 am. The falls where beautiful and there is a small stream that comes from the falls that you see 1/4 the way there. The trail goes on past the falls, and leads to a pretty view of the city inbetween the mountains. I went at the perfect time as was able to see the sun rise over the mountains near the end of the trail.

Great hike! I had it all to myself..well except for the mosquitos. lol definately use bug spray! Butterflies were everywhere. Saw a buck. 1/3 of the trail is a bit claustrophobic because the vegetation is as tall as me and overgrowing the trail. The uphill portion got the heart pounding. I'm mid forties, out of shape and did fine.

This area is dry and hot this year. I started out about 9am. 30min in it was hot. We passed by the first waterfall and found the trail nice and empty. It is very busy the first .5 miles to the falls.

One other complaint is the bathroom at Kiwanis park at the trail head is disgusting, toilet paper smeared all over the ground with brownish liquid all over them., no toilet paper on the rolls. Stinky with allot of flies. There is a park behind the high school on road you come in on that is so much nicer.

Easy 1/2 mile hike to the first waterfall, but going past that gets pretty difficult. Very steep. We made it 2 miles in and turned back. We thought the 4 mile estimate for this trail was round trip, but later learned it is one way. Also, many people said they took their small kids on this easily - maybe to the first Falls. Past that, I cannot see a child that size getting terribly far (I have 2 small children myself). Overall though, we enjoyed it...challenging & great scenery!

This hike is great. The trail is indeed, busy and heavily trafficked. Unfortunately, there is trash and dog poo. But... once the trail begins to run alongside the creek, it’s beautiful. Then, the falls. It’s a fun and safe hike to the falls.
If you hike past the falls, elevation climbs drastically. For those of us who are not from Utah... the elevation really affects the lungs. But it’s beautiful. Take lots of water, and prepare for an uphill climb in... and a steep downhill out.
Also: the trail goes much farther than the 4-miles in, as it merges with a couple other trails, including Dry Canyon. There appear to be rustic camp sites along the trail...

One of our favorites

My wife hates hiking and she loved this trail. It's probably the best combination around of ease and scenery. Great for a relaxing Sunday morning!

great fun, kids had a blast. we brought them in their swim suits and shorts on top so they could play in some of the little pond formations. overall, we had a great time.

Great hike with beautiful views. Its definitely not an “easy” hike. But not too bad.
Worth the hike!

One of my favorite trails in this area. Go early because the trail is mostly in the sun. I went the first day and turned around (started to late in the day). The next day started at 6:30. Incline is not too hard, scenery beautiful, and trail clearly defined. You get all kinds of scenery- cliffs, wooded areas, meadows. It’s just lovely.

Well tracked trail, and very easy for all abilities. Brought my dog, and the trail got too hot for her paws, I would recommend going later in the day to get better shade, unless you want to carry your dog through the hot spots. The falls are a perfect place to cool off, some micro-trash by the falls.

Fun and easy it does get steep. the waterfall is beautiful.

It is a short hike. I went with my 4 yr old and he did great. Pretty falls and scenery.

A nice easy hike with a nice cool waterfall to sit by. Definitely would recommend to people starting to hike.

Great trail with lots of shade. Steep in parts but only for short periods. Love the horse trough for our pups to drink from at about the midpoint. And stunning views throughout with hardly any crowds!

This is a beautiful hike. We loved it! It is however, in no means "easy". It should be rated as MODERATE.

Great hike, Dogs ok, I took my 10,11,15, and 4 year old and they did just fine, keep in mind if you are out of shape to take your time to not rush and you can make it. Very woorth the Falls ar the end defiantly go!!!!

This was a beautiful hike! It was my first hike in a while so I would actually rate it as moderate. But it was gorgeous!!

Loved this trail. Very pretty trail, stunning view at the overlook. Steep near the end but overall a pretty easy trail. I'll do it again with my kids. Instead of out n back we made a loop starting on Horse Flat Trail and returning on Lame Horse Trail. If you study the map before you leave or download the map you will have no trouble following the right route. Not too tricky. Near the junction of Lame Horse and Horse Flat there is a spring piped into a trough where you can get a delicious cold swig of fresh (clean and safe) mountain spring water.

As others have said hike to falls is about a mile slight incline, my 5 & 8 year old girls did well to this point and even to the top of the falls. Falls are not that impressive but there is a nice spot to look up from the bottom and enjoy the cool mist. The trail continues uphill along the river with a few smaller waterfalls. They tired pretty quickly after the falls and we turned around about a mile past the falls.

The waterfall is so pretty at the end, biut this is defiantly to long taking 4 kids with you, definitely a hike you go with less people, as it is busy and Dogs are not on leashes, lots of poo that people dont pick up that ruins it for others. Took us 4 hours and were very tired but if we had less it would of been better. all around good hike for a person that is out of shape.

Great hike for families.
